I was watching the last climb in yesterday’s mountain stage at the Vuelta (Tour of Spain), as I suddenly noticed the cool red-white-and-blue flag hung op on the side. In big, big letters it said: THERE IT GOES. Haha! Cyclist Koos Moerenhout had told me about the flag earlier (he already spotted it on Wednesday and Thursday), but hey: seeing is believeing! I’m wondering if we can find the people who put the flag up there. Please send us an email, we want the full story!
Last week we released our new single ‘There it goes (for Koos)’. Since then, we’ve had major coverage in Dutch newspapers and on national radio. Our favourite blog Eerstehulpbijplaatopnamen has a nice article that pretty much sums up the attention we’ve got so far. Great reading stuff!
We’ve made a little film clip with the pictures that were taken at the Dutch Time Trial Championship (August 27, 2009). At this event, we presented our song ‘There it goes (for Koos)’ to Koos Moerenhout. Check out the clip below. Pictures taken by Andre v/d Velden.
We’ve just come home after a great night with Koos Moerenhout. As you know, we recorded a song for him. Today we handed out the first copy of the single to Koos himself. He was very enthusiastic and we chatted with him, his trainer, his wife and his webmaster for some time. In the time trial he was really fast but his team mate Stef Clement beat him in the end. Still quite an amazing second place. After the podium ceremony, Koos gave the flowers to The Gasoline Brothers, thanking us for our song. Of course, we were blushing…
Dutch national radio show The Coen & Sander Show (3FM) interviewed us and we had a funny conversation, during which they received a lot of text messages from listeners that loved our track. How cool is that? Oh by the way, we got airplay on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 3FM today… Nice!
It’s done. And we’re happy. The recording session for the Koos Moerenhout song last night was a complete success. We rocked it and the tape loved it. Radio 1 reporter Edwin Cornelissen (Langs de Lijn) was at the session all night long and will be editing the material Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon, his radio report will be broadcast on ‘Langs de Lijn’. Want to hear what the song sounds like? Be sure to listen to Radio 1 between 14.00 and 17.00 on Saturday.
